The Stadtbahn opened on 29 September[3] gradually replacing the city’s tramway network over the course of the following 25 years. As ofit transported million passengers per year. Three types of light rail cars operate on the system, gvhh TWbuilt from tothe TW the so-called “Silberpfeil”built from toand the TWwhich is still being built and was first introduced into A line service in Hanover Stadtbahn is complemented by DB -owned Hanover S-Bahna suburban heavy rail network which links the outlying suburbs and towns, as well as Hanover Airportto the city centre.

It is owned by infra GmbH and covers nearly the whole city area. Parts of the Stadtbahn reach into the neighbouring towns of Garbsen, Isernhagen, Langenhagen, Laatzen gbh Ronnenberg as well as into the town of Sarstedt, which is in the borough of Hildesheim.

The system currently consists of three full Stadtbahn route networks, respectively named with their defining tunnels in brackets:. The entire Stadtbahn network uses various colours to differentiate between the main route networks. For example, a station that serves both A and B lines has a blue and a red stripe on its station sign; stop on the D line would feature a lime stripe on the station sign, and so on. Individual lines operate within the main route networks, diverting to various terminals at the city’s edge.

Whilst the number 6 and 16 services use a large part of the D line, they are still denoted as C services by using the colour yellow on station signage. Lines11, 16 and 18 all call at this station, making it possible to reach every point on the A, B or C route networks from every other point with only one change. One proposed major tunnel that was part of the plans has not been built so far and probably will never be.

It would however have been greatly beneficial to the D line, reducing stepover times to other lines. The current surface D line between Goetheplatz and Aegidientorplatz is regarded as a temporary solution for the time being [ when? During the renovation of the Hauptbahnhof in andthe tram tracks in front of the station were not replaced either.

This is called “Projekt zehn-siebzehn” see below and consists of renovating the existing surface line instead of building new tunnels. Even though it is of a relatively young age, nerzplan Hanover Stadtbahn already has some buildings that are likely not to be used as intended.

These are three tunnel stubs in the A and B tunnels. The stubs currently house some technical service rooms. A notably netzplab structure exists behind the middle tracks of the station Waterloo. It was originally supposed to extend a tunnel toward the A-West line 9 toward Empelde and to construct a turning loop. However, this would require tearing down the current A-West ramp at Gustav-Bratke-Allee which would disconnect the Glocksee depot from the network.

Thus, this will likely never be carried out. Hanover — At the end of the Napoleonic Wars, the Electorate was enlarged to become a Kingdom with Hanover as its capital. Since it has been part of the Hanover district, which is a body made up from the former district. With a nstzplan of , Hanover is a centre of Northern Germany.

InHvh hosted the world fair Expothe Hanover fairground, due to numerous extensions, especially for the Expois the largest in the world.

Hanover is of nezplan because of its universities and medical school, its international airport. The city is also a crossing point of railway lines and highways. Hanover is the traditional English spelling, the German spelling is becoming more popular in English, recent editions of encyclopaedias prefer the German spelling, and the local government uses the German spelling on English websites.

The traditional English spelling is used in historical contexts, especially when referring to the British House of Hanover. Hanover was founded in times on the east ndtzplan of the River Leine. Its original name Honovere may mean high bank, though this is debated, Hanover was a small village of ferrymen and fishermen gvy became a comparatively large town in the 13th century due to its position at a natural crossroads. As overland travel was difficult, its position on the upper navigable reaches of the river helped it to grow by increasing trade.

In the 14th century the churches of Hanover were built. Its electors would later become monarchs of Great Britain, the first of these was George I Louis, who acceded to the British throne in The last British monarch who ruled in Hanover was William IV, semi-Salic law, which required succession by the male line if possible, forbade the accession of Queen Victoria in Hanover. In rural areas Northern Low Saxon, a dialect of Low Netpzlan, and Saterland Frisian, a variety of Frisian, are still spoken, but the number of speakers is declining.

Furthermore, the state of Bremen forms two enclaves within Lower Saxony, one being the city of Bremen, the other, its city of Bremerhaven. The northwestern area of Lower Saxony, which lies on the coast of the North Sea, netzplam called East Frisia, in the extreme west of Lower Saxony is the Emsland, a traditionally poor and sparsely populated area, once dominated by inaccessible swamps.

The northern half of Lower Saxony, also known as the North German Plains, is almost invariably tvh except for the hills around the Bremen geestland. Towards the south and southwest lie the northern parts of the German Central Uplands, the Weser Uplands, between these two lie the Lower Saxon Hills, a range of low ridges.

Oldenburg, near the coastline, is another economic centre. Due to its local climate and fertile soil, it is hvh states largest area of fruit farming. Most of the territory was part of the historic Kingdom of Hanover. It was created by the merger of the State of Hanover with several states in Lower Saxony has a boundary in the north in the North Sea. The state and city of Bremen is an enclave surrounded by Lower Saxony. Germany — Germany, officially the Federal Republic of Germany, is a federal parliamentary republic in central-western Europe.

It includes 16 constituent states, covers an area ofsquare kilometres, with about 82 million inhabitants, Germany is the most populous member state of the Bvh Union. After the United States, it is the second most popular destination in the world. Various Germanic tribes have inhabited the northern parts of modern Germany since classical antiquity, a region named Germania was documented before AD.

During the Migration Period the Germanic tribes expanded southward, beginning in the 10th century, German territories formed a central part of the Holy Roman Empire.

Light rail — Light rail, light rail transit or fast tram is urban public transport using rolling stock similar to a tramway, but operating at a higher capacity, and often on an exclusive right-of-way. A few light rail networks tend to have closer to rapid transit or even commuter rail. Other light rail networks are tram-like in nature and partially operate on streets, Light rail systems are found throughout the world, on all inhabited continents.

They have been popular in recent years due to their lower capital costs. The term light rail was coined in by the U. S, Urban Mass Transportation Administration to describe new streetcar transformations that were taking place in Europe and the United States.

Light in this context is used in the sense of intended for light loads and fast movement, the infrastructure investment is also usually lighter than would be found for a heavy rail system. The Transportation Research Board defined light rail in as a mode of urban transportation utilizing predominantly reserved, electrically propelled rail vehicles operate singly or in trains. LRT provides a range of passenger capabilities and performance characteristics at moderate costs.

Light rail is a generic international English phrase for these types of rail systems, the use of the generic term light rail avoids some serious incompatibilities between British and American English.


The word trolley is used as a synonym for streetcar in the United States. A further difference arose because, while Britain abandoned all of its trams except Blackpool after World War II, when these cities upgraded to new technology, they called it light rail to differentiate it from their existing streetcars since some continued to operate both the old and new systems. Monorail is a technology that has been more successful in specialized services than in a commuter transit role.

Due to varying definitions, it is hard to distinguish between what is called light rail, and other forms of urban and commuter rail, a system described as light rail in one city may be considered to be a streetcar or tram system in another.

Conversely, some lines that are called light rail are in very similar to rapid transit, in recent years. Some light rail systems, such as Sprinter, bear little similarity to urban rail, in the United States, light rail has become a catch-all term to describe a wide variety of passenger rail systems. There is a significant difference in gvvh between these different classes of light rail transit, tram-like systems are often less expensive than metro-like systems by a factor of two or more.

Stadtbahn — Most Stadtbahn systems are now a mixture of tramway-like operations in suburban and peripheral areas and a more metro-like mode of operation in city centres, with underground stations. This Stadtbahn concept eventually spread from Germany to other European countries, the term Stadtbahn first arose in the first half of the 20th century as a name for the cross-city lines in Berlin and Hvh. The Berlin Stadtbahn line is a heavy rail line linking the East.

Long distance, regional, suburban, and urban services are operated on it, the Wiener Stadtbahn was in the beginning a system of heavy rail lines circling the city, free of level crossings, operated by steam trains. In the s to s the infrastructure was updated, and the lines were relocated, they are now part of the Vienna U-Bahn services U4. The Vorortelinie hetzplan remained heavy rail and is now part of the Vienna S-Bahn, post-World War II gvn policies in West German cities aimed for a separation of public and private transport.

The conflicts that arose between increasing car usage and the tramway systems led to the so-called second level concept for future light rail schemes. This concept focused on the separation, i. The numbering scheme for Stadtbahn services was prefixed with a U, except in the Cologne Stadtbahn, Bielefeld Stadtbahn, by the s conventional tramways had been seen by decision-makers as overloaded systems for almost two decades.

However, public attention focused on them at this time for two reasons, the Stadtbahn cities second level plans faced unexpected complications in the form of lengthy construction work, budgetary problems for tunnel projects, and protests against elevated sections. At the same time, the cities which had not started Stadtbahn plans reassessed their options in relation to their existing tram systems. The Stadtbahn term has now come to have the meaning of modern tramway or modernized tramway.

East German cities had no s-style Neetzplan plans in place, and the fleets, after the reunification of Germany inthe use of the Stadtbahn term became popular in the former East Germany as well, as in Erfurt and Dresden.

In Karlsruhe started a new service, using both heavy and light rail infrastructure, to link the wider region to the city. The vehicles were designed to comply with specifications for the heavy railway.

Tram — A tram is a rail vehicle which runs on tracks along public urban streets, and also sometimes on a segregated right of way. The lines or networks operated by tramcars are called tramways, Tramways powered by electricity, the most common type historically, were once called electric street railways. However, trams were used in urban areas before the universal adoption of electrification.

Very occasionally, trams also carry freight, Tram vehicles are usually lighter and shorter than conventional trains and rapid transit trains, but the size of trams is rapidly increasing. Some trams may also run on railway tracks, a tramway may be upgraded to a light rail or a rapid transit line.
